A cake born to celebrate a birthday of a loved one. I simply thought of assembling the tastes that would have pleased her most. The cake is composed of a base of soft chocolate biscuit, a crunchy walnut praline, a creamy dark chocolate and a dulcey panna cotta. Smooth on the palate and with a slightly caramelized and toasted flavor.

Procedure to make the chocolate cake, walnut praline and dulcey panna cotta

For the base
Beat the egg whites with the sugar. Then add the liquid egg yolks and finally the sieved cocoa. Spread the biscuit at a height of about 1cm. on a sheet of parchment paper. Bake at 190 ° C for about 10 -15 ‘.
Once it is cold, remove it from the parchment paper and cut with a 22 cm ring and freeze it by holding it in the ring.

For the crunchy disc
Melt the chocolate, then add the praline, the cereal flakes crumbled with your hands and mix. Spread with the back of a spoon a uniform layer, about half a centimeter high, on the frozen cookie, (in order to facilitate the operation and not to ruin the biscuit) and freeze.

For panna cotta
Melt the Dulcey chocolate at 40 ° C. Boil the milk with the glucose, add softened and squeezed gelatine. Pour the mixture over the chocolate and mix by rubbing well with a whisk. Once well mixed add the liquid cream and mix with the mixer trying not to create air bubbles. Once the mixture is homogeneous and slightly cooled it can be used.
